Default Re: How do I stop breaking spokes?

Loose spokes get looser real fast. In a case where spokes become unevenly tensioned other spokes wind up doing to much work by them selves.
Properly tensioned spokes will stay tight and not need any real attention.

When they are the right amount of loose they will loosen them selves up. The right amount of tight they stay tight.

I have not seen all the wheel hubs out there. What are you using? I have heard reports of some cheaper low end Chinese hubs having too skinny of a hub flange. I have a set here that kinda cut into the spokes where the bend attaches from being thinner.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
